How to Celebrate Halloween at Home

Trick-or-treating may be cancelled but that doesn't mean Halloween has to be! Who's ready for Hallow-tine/Quaren-ween 2020?

If you're someone (or have someone) who loves everything about spooky season and finding the perfect costume, there are still tons of ways to celebrate at home. Whether you want your night scary or filled with family-approved fun, here are 8 ways to bring the fun to you.

Candy Scavenger Hunt

Who says you can't still buy the candy? And this way, you don't even have to share. Create a game for the kiddos by hiding treats throughout your home and sending them on their way.

Pumpkin Carving or Decorating

You may already have some out for display on your porch, but why not carve a few more? Have a contest for who has the most creative pumpkin, or why not paint them instead! Either way, clear out the seeds and roast them for a delicious Halloween-night snack.

Don't go crazy on just the outside of your home! Halloween-ize the inside to help it feel like more of a celebration. Decorate together during the day to start your celebration as early as possible!

Movie Marathon

Find everything comfy in your home, plus all of that candy, and set up in front of the TV for the ultimate movie marathon. Scary movies are usually the go to on Halloween night, but if you're waiting until the little ones go to bed to get into the scary stuff, try a Harry Potter marathon or any of these kid-friendly movies that won't keep them up.


Festive Cocktails

Nothing makes a celebration quite like festive snacks and cocktails. Check out this list of 20+ Halloween Cocktails to help ring in Hallows Eve.
